Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.
Matthew 11:28 NLT
I was walking alone among these giants…
In a rare, fluid moment of breath, heart, and time…
a single tree spoke.
I returned the embrace of the arms that held me.
Feathery light moments passed…then…ever so gently…
a breeze interrupted with a prickly gray mist,
and the tree whispered a nudge.
The tree was voiceless.
My breath breathed of earth, yet…I felt whole, happy, and free.
I’d rested in the arms of home.
And there’s no other place I’d rather be.
